7-11-98 Meeting Recap
July 12, 1998

Our last meeting took place at the Shellbank Yacht Club, 1 Merit Court, on July 11, 1998 at 12:00 Noon.

This was a unique meeting for our community in the respect that it was the only opportunity this community will have had to meet and evaluate each candidate in the same room. It was a rare opportunity for Gerritsen Beach residents to meet and be better informed about future representation of our community.

Invitations were sent to those who we knew were candidates at the time we decided to format the meeting in this manner. At the time, those candidates had actively expressed an interest in Gerritsen Beach. This was not a debate among the candidates, or a fundraiser. Gerritsen Beach Cares is not endorsing any candidate.

Congressional candidates Assemblyman Dan Feldman and Councilman Anthony Weiner attended the question and answer session. They made opening statements and fielded many questions from GB residents. Assemblywoman Melinda Katz, had a previously scheduled appointment and could not attend.

Following the Congressional candidates, Assembly candidate Alan Sclar, Esq., attended the meeting and also fielded many questions of our community?s residents. Joel Garson had been invited to attend, but chose not to show up to this meeting.

We had an independent person who is not working for any of the candidates and does not live in Gerritsen Beach mediate the question and answer session. The questions included, but were not limited to, environmental, recreational and health concerns of our community.
In his opening statement, Congressional candidate Dan Feldman reiterated that he has publicly served Gerritsen Beach for 18 years as our Assemblyman. He wrote over 125 laws in the State Assembly, many of which very few people know that he is the author. According to Dan Feldman, if you look at his record from a logical standpoint, he believes that there is no question who is the most qualified candidate for the Congressional seat.

Congressional candidate Anthony Weiner made his opening statement stressing that he has six years of experience in the City Council, bringing many needed services to the elderly
A question of what would the successor to Dan Feldman?s Assembly seat would hope to address . Dan Feldman explained that re-establishing the usage of rail freight is extremely important, pointing out that New York City is at a competitive disadvantage compared to other American cities because it has to pay more to import and export goods by truck. A truck driver has to sit in traffic for hours when coming to access points east of the Hudson River. In other cities, this is not the case. In New York City, transporting by truck is more costly than transporting by rail freight. New York City used to be the greatest port in the United States. Today, it is virtually dead because of the lack of rail freight.
Anthony Weiner questioned where all the money that is collected for the New York State Lottery is going. According to Anthony Weiner, it was supposed to go to education, but it is not. There is a shell game being played in Albany, and it has been played in Albany for sometime. For every dollar that is raised in the pot, that is one dollar that the legislature and the Governor can take out that goes to the general fund instead of education. In addition to this problem, more education dollars going to Upstate New York instead of New York City. Weiner hopes that whoever replaces Dan Feldman addresses the diversion of Lottery dollars slated for education and the problem and the inequity of education dollars divided into the State.
A question was raised concerning the All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) from tearing up the open fields in Gerritsen Beach and in effect, tearing up our tax dollars. Anthony Weiner stated that Gerritsen Beach is in the far corner of a very big precinct and is forgotten very often. He took that standpoint that we have to get the police here and keep them here. He stressed that we have to get back to the idea that cops have a beat. A cop has to know the community. The New York City Police Department has more manpower now than it has had in the last 20 years that is a result of a personal income tax surcharge.
Dan Feldman brought out the point that the configuration of the division of the 61st and 63rd Police precinct lines. For 12 years he has been trying to solve this problem. He noted that there is enormous competition for scarce resources, such as guardrails. No one has committed to putting the resources to use.
A major and growing concern to our residents was brought to the floor. The Community Board lines between CB 15 and CB 18 divide Gerritsen Beach in half. There are no longer established residences in the park, so there are no voting constituents that live in the park. The question from this concern is: can the borders be changed to include all of Gerritsen Beach in one Community Board district and one Police Precinct?
Anthony Weiner stated that changing the boundaries of a Police Precinct is a very difficult process. Kings Highway to Grand Army Plaza, taking in Prospect Park. He finally convinced them to remove Prospect Park from the precinct, but it was an extraordinary ordeal. Weiner thinks that a much better strategy is to have a Memorandum of Understanding between the 61st and 63rd Precincts who responds to calls. While changing the precinct lines is not impossible, Weiner believes that is a paper mistake. What Gerritsen Beach needs is unity to enforce the laws.
A concern was raised that Gerritsen Beach cannot obtain crime statistics because the Divisions above the Precinct level also divides Gerritsen Beach in half. When you request crime statistics for Gerritsen Beach, you can only receive statistics from Gerritsen Avenue to Shellbank Creek. You can have a crime across the street in the Park and it will not show up in the statistics for crime in Gerritsen Beach. Although the park area is named ?Marine Park?, it is one-half of the Gerritsen Beach community. Our kids play there everyday of the week. With all of these divisions, there are those that are slowly attempting to annex one-half of the Gerritsen Beach community to the Marine Park community. The question raised from this concern is how will the candidates address this problem and the quality of life just in Gerritsen Beach.
Dan Feldman stated that the Congressperson that is elected would have to have some kind of influence on those decisions. Feldman could not think of a logical reason why the area of Marine Park that is in Gerritsen Beach could not be in one precinct.
Community Board 15 Member Cathy Blundell informed Dan Feldman that she remembered when they worked on the reconfiguration of Community Board lines in. Part of the reason for the division of Community Board 15 and 18 lines was the fact that the Sanitation Garage that was located on East 49th Street in Flatbush would have ended up in the weeds had all of Gerritsen Beach been in Community Board 15. The Sanitation Garage wound up next to Gerritsen Beach on Knapp Street anyway.
Anthony Weiner suggested solving the problem with the community?s help. Weiner would like to convene a meeting with the Commanding Officers of the 61st and 63rd Precincts. The idea is not to grip, but to come up with solutions. If the solutions fail, we will convene again and again until the solution is permanent. Weiner stated that there are some problems of government that requires you need to be a squeaky annoying wheel. He does not think that is the job of the community, but the job of an elected official.
A question was raised concerning the Marine Biology program at P.S. 277. It has been going on for the last six years, but the funding has expired. Is there anyway to continue the program?
Dan Feldman stated that he wished someone had brought it to his attention before the State budget was completed because that is the type of program that his office has been funding for years. He did not think there is of a chance to get State funding.
Anthony Weiner stated that he would try immediately to start the process of getting money. He stated that Herb Berman represents the area and has considerable clout and is big supporter of Weiner. Weiner stated that he would make every effort.
In his opening statement, Assembly Candidate Alan Sclar stated that he is married to a public school teacher and they have a two-year old daughter. He lives in Sheepshead Bay and is an attorney with a Manhattan law firm. He has worked with Dan Feldman as his Director of Volunteer Programs for more than seven years. He has represented Dan Feldman at many meetings, including Gerritsen Beach Property Owner?s Association meetings. He fought against the plan to dump toxic waste off our shores. In essence, his experiences working with Dan Feldman has provided him with on the job training for the job of Assemblyman.
In personally meeting many of Gerritsen Beach?s residents at their homes discussing problems of the community, he has gained an understanding and deep appreciation for our community. He worked side-by-side with the residents of our community during GB Clean Up ?98 and is a supporter of the clean up of the shoreline across from Kiddie Beach. Gerritsen Beach is a special place and deserves special attention, which he will give when he takes office on January 2, 1999.
A question was raised of how he would handle the speeding and lights in Gerritsen Beach. As far as the light issue is concerned, Alan Sclar thought was very important is the lack of a traffic light at the intersection of Channel and Gerritsen Avenues. School children can get killed or injured there. He does not want to wait before an accident happens. The DOT has been coming to do their study at times during the day when traffic is not that busy. You do not do a study when traffic is light. A study should be done when traffic is at the heaviest time of the day. Sclar stated that he will work very hard to get DOT to change the policy.
As far as the speeding issue is concerned, speed bumps sometimes plays a role, but they could cause one to lose control of a car and could cause a lot of damage to one?s car. He feels that rumble strips could be a viable option. The strips cause a car to vibrate, compelling a driver to slow down. The strips are a little noisy when passing over them, but causes negligible or no damage to one?s car.
A question was raised about the pollution problems on and in our waterways. Alan Sclar responded that there needs to be an independent comprehensive environmental study done by people that do not owe their jobs or salaries to certain people. This is problem that has been going on in Gerritsen Beach for quite some time.
Sclar was asked about the lack of accessibility to the handicapped and physically challenged individuals. Sclar thought it was a downright shame that every single corner is not handicapped accessible. He is going to do everything in his power to make sure that everything in Gerritsen Beach is handicapped accessible, as far as their natural abilities will allow.
The perpetual problem of the lack of constructive things for kids to do once they reach the age of 13 was brought to the floor. The question to Alan Sclar was how would he handle this problem. Sclar responded that it is a multi-faceted problem that requires many to play a part in solving the issue.
Alan Sclar this is a community based problem and intends to hire a staff member that is going to concentrate on Gerritsen Beach. If you do not give kids something to do, they are going to find something that might not be that palatable or may not be the right thing to do. He thinks that the kids of Gerritsen Beach should focus community events, such as the clean ups and uncovering history of the community that Gerritsen Beach Cares has organized.
He believes that Police Officers are doing a good job in general. However, in Gerritsen Beach they should open themselves up more to the kids, possibly stopping by to a group of kids on a street corner and introducing themselves by saying something like ?Hi, my name is Officer?I would like to find out what some of your concerns are?. Maybe there is a graffiti problem or bus shelters are broken. Kids are intelligent and they know what is going on. There is a lot that you can find out from them.
There are not a lot of areas where there are 1,000 kids in such a small area. There is something called Tri-Pac, which is a State funded system, whereby different legislators pool their discretionary funds to do constructive projects. This community more than needs it. He likes what is going on in the O?Conner Newell Youth Center and highly in favor of expanding the program to give kids more to do.
Another good question was raised on how to solve the problem of bringing different community groups together so Gerritsen Beach can correctly address issues, make accurate and informed decisions, rather than positioning people against each other.
Alan Sclar stated that when you have a community that fights among itself, it does not get done as much as it should. He thinks that it is very important to bring people together to solve differences. He was side-by-side during GB Clean Up ?98 and experienced first hand exactly what can be done when Gerritsen Beach puts its mind, heart and soul into it.
Sclar stated that he is going to take a lot of time out in order to try to bring this community back together. Shooting yourself in your own foot is not productive. We need to come together as a community for the good of the community. When it has to do with Gerritsen Beach against other communities for funding a program or project is one thing, but it should not be Gerritsen Beach against itself in order to get funding. It is a mistake that is done all the time. The losers are the people in the community.
A question of how to get grants for various projects and how would Sclar support obtaining grants for Gerritsen Beach. Sclar stated that he will look at any community grant there is some things that he would look at, such as what is the organization doing for the community, are they providing essential community services, and if they are doing that, he would be supportive of the organization. Grants depend on what is the proposal, it depends on what you are asking the money for, where you are asking the money to come from, etc.
Sclar stated that he supportive of Gerritsen Beach Cares. The organization is less than two years old, have many members, have your own newsletter and are providing a lot of services. You are actually getting things done and getting things cleaned up. When the powers that be or the politics as usual people try to stop you, saying that you are not going to get this done or you are not going to get that much done because the project is going to cost too much money or it is not feasible, Gerritsen Beach Cares just simply says lets just go ahead and do it, and then you do it. That is amazing. To bring down a 1,000 people one year and then over 600 people the next year and to be organized so is an impeccable job.
When you have this type of community involvement, the whole community benefits. Whether or not the whole community is with you, they benefit also. He stated that he would do everything he can to help with grant money.
A question arose what are a couple of reasons that separates Alan Sclar from Joel Garson and Lena Cymbrowitz. Sclar stressed that he is not going to talk negative about his opponents. The main thing is to get his own name out there.
According to Sclar, with this particular campaign, when you look at him, you are looking at the total package. You are looking at someone with a lot of legislative experience, having written a few bills, some of which became law when he interned in Albany for a State Assemblyman. He has worked in the community for Dan Feldman for the past 71 years in the entire 45th Assembly District. Sclar has not been just solving problems, but actually doing a lot of the job as an Assemblyman. I have been receiving on the job training.
Sclar stated that he is also an attorney. He understands the way the law works and since he will be making laws, it helps to have familiarity of the laws, which he does. He worked for a Criminal Court Judge for four years.
Sclar asserted that all the candidates are democrats and although they have some differences, a lot of the issues are the same. It is not just exactly whether or not we are in favor of a particular issue or not, it is whether or not he can solve the problem and go into Albany and defend the problems that are here. Also, it is important to have the wherewithal to get the job done, which he believes he has. He thinks if you look at the other candidates and you look at Alan Sclar, there is a clear answer, it is Alan Sclar.
